Look for our awesome digital billboard starting April 1 on I-70 Business Loop, on the south side of the road right by Hobby Lobby and just west of Chick-Fil-A!

 

Have you been questioning participation in organized religion? Do you enjoy the fellowship and social connections you get from church, but secretly question the things you’ve been told you must believe? Have you ever thought to yourself that the things you’ve been told to believe don’t quite make sense? Many of us started out just like you. We are Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers, the western slope’s first secular advocacy and community group. Come join us at a meeting to chat, ask questions or just listen in. We guarantee WE’LL MAKE SENSE!

Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers (WCAF) was organized in February, 2007 in Grand Junction, to add a long-missing secular voice to the community dialogue in western Colorado. WCAF’s goals are to inform and educate the public in Western Colorado about atheism, promote atheism through appropriate public and community activities, actively preserve and promote the separation of religion and government and promote acceptance of atheism as a valid, rational belief system. WCAF also provides western Colorado atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and humanists a way to connect with each other, share information, enjoy social activities, develop new friendships and enjoy freethinking conversation. We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit group, and all donations to WCAF are tax deductible. Come join us!

George Carlin once said "I've begun worshipping the Sun for a number of reasons. First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the Sun. It's there for me every day. And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time: heat, light, food, a lovely day. There's no mystery, no one asks for money, I don't have to dress up, and there's no boring pageantry. And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to God are all answered at about the same 50-percent rate." (from George Carlin, Brain Droppings)
